Re: Archiving ftp.sgi.com

Currently running an LFTP scan to see how big it is now. Will get back to you.

Apparently it's 71GB. Not bad. Will look into mirroring that myself.

Archiving ftp.sgi.com

Hi all! As we all know, HPE has acquired SGI and is slowly in the process of merging their products into HPEs. For this reason, I am concerned that ftp.sgi.com, which hosts files for systems as far back as the IRIS 3000, may be at risk. I believe that an effort similar to jan-jaap's Techpubs archive...

Re: SGI Wallpapers made from Techpubs graphics

There's another cool part: SGI drew the insides as well! You just have to remove the outer layers (this is from an earlier test screenshot so the color is different):

SGI Wallpapers made from Techpubs graphics

While looking for some vector graphics of the Origin2000, I stumbled upon the PDF versions of SGIs TechPubs documents (archived at techpubs.jurassic.nl, thanks jan-jaap!). The PDF versions contain vector images of the systems, so I thought I might make some wallpapers using Inkscape. I just had to c...

Hmm, if there is demand at this price point I would ponder selling off part of the "corner of IP30"...

Re: A snapshot of what you've got.

I think I've seen that first pic before. I once used to show the relative sizes of SGIs to a friend of mine, if I remember correctly. His response was "the Onyx is HUGE!".

I now own an Onyx. Can confirm, is huge.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Is it to warn others of the speeding Origin racks :lol: ?

Cool! iFixit has an Onyx teardown that I used when going to get my Onyx, you could consider posting the pics if you have the time.

Re: A snapshot of what you've got.

Among the SGIs, probably the Origin since it's right under my main desk and connected to my desktop via a serial port, or the Octane in the basement. The Origin will be getting a video on my channel soon, as will the Onyx once it works. I will have to experiment to find out how to film such enormous...

Re: Wanted: Dual R14K Node boards for O2K/Onyx2 or Dual-R12K/400MHz

Would maybe also take 4 for my O2K, would want to find out if they're still around and what the shipping costs.
